smbk5pwd hooks into the PasswordModify extended operation while adpwc
hooks into bind. So both address different situations.

Since adpwc does not perform pwdModify exop, I expect ppolicy to fail at

The overlay uses the krb(5)PrincipalName as given in the user object.
If it includes a realm, that is used.

The current design intentionally has absolutely no requirements on the AD side.
The overlay does no server authentication.
